A Puritan Theology: Doctrine for Life offers a groundbreaking exposition of Puritan teaching on most of the major Reformed doctrines, particularly those doctrines to which Puritans made significant contributions. Since the late 1950s, Joel Beeke and Randall Pederson have reprinted and cataloged nearly 150 Puritan authors and 700 Puritan books in their 2006 collection of minibiographies and book reviews, titled, Meet the Puritans . However, no work so far has brought together the threads of his teaching into a unified tapestry of systematic theology.

A Puritan Theology , by Joel Beeke and Mark Jones, attempts to do that. The book addresses Puritan teachings on the six loci of theology, covering fifty areas of doctrine. The book explores Puritan teachings on biblical interpretation, God, predestination, providence, angels, sin, covenants, the gospel, Christ, preparation for conversion, regeneration, coming to Christ, justification, adoption, church government, the Christian Sabbath, preaching, baptism, heaven, hell, and many other topics. It ends with eight chapters exploring "Puritan theology in practice." Some chapters highlight the work of a specific theologian such as William Perkins, William Ames, John Owen, Stephen Charnock, or Thomas Goodwin on a specific topic. Other chapters examine various authors on a particular topic. The goal of A Puritan Theology is to increase knowledge in the mind and piety in the soul. It was written for theologians, historians, pastors, and educated laypeople seeking to learn more about Puritan theology.

“For more than half a century the primary research of Puritan theologians has been in full swing. Here and now there is a tremendous compendium of discoveries, digested in sixty vibrant chapters. The authors' expository skills will keep readers on their toes, and the Puritans' all-encompassing interest in the godly life will send readers to their knees. This book is a milestone in every sense.”
—JI Packer, Board of Governors, Professor of Theology, Regent College, author of Knowing God

“Without a doubt, this is the magnum opus of Joel Beeke and Mark Jones—their contribution to the study of our Calvinist ancestors, the Puritans. With a massive body, the authors make a tremendous contribution to our understanding of Puritan theology by compiling this reserve of their teaching. This work is scholarly, well-researched, precise and comprehensive in scope, yet accessible in style. This unique volume of theology allows us to sit at the feet of these luminous figures and be taught by their Scripture-filled, God-saturated writings.”
—Steven J. Lawson, pastor of Christ Fellowship Baptist Church, Mobile, Alabama, and author of the A Grand Legacy of Heroes of the Faith series

“Without a doubt, the Puritans are one of the sources of theology that is both doctrinal and practical in equal measures. This tremendous volume by Joel Beeke and Mark Jones provides the reader with a comprehensive introduction to Puritan thought. It is an important work of historical-theological synthesis and a book to which I will return again and again, both for academic reference and for personal devotion. “Just an amazing achievement.”
— Carl R. Trueman, Paul Woolley Professor of Ecclesiastical History, Westminster Theological Seminary
